Fashion For Women:

In the ‘30’s women had gone from a flapper look of the twenties to a more feminine style.

  • Hemlines dropped to ankle
  • Necklines were lowered and received dramatic attention. Often with wide edges or ruffled collars
  • Torsos were molded beneath square shoulders
  • Darts were replaced by soft gathers
  • Waists were turned to a natural waistline
  • Full skirts exentuated a small waist and minimized the hips
  • Dress bodices were designed with inset pieces and yokes
